English Tutoring Programs Build Self-Confidence in Latino Children …

The learning cottage in Greenleigh began as a vision to increase the English-speaking skills of about 300 Hispanic children who live in the trailer parkAcademic assistance center plants the seeds of self-confidenceApril 02–Dante Jemison, a fifth-grade student at Elizabeth Scott Elementary School in Chesterfield County, bounded into the Greenleigh Instructional Learning Cottage last week after a grueling day of Standards of Learning testing.He didn’t have any homework assignments to complete during the hourlong tutoring session on Tuesday afternoon, but that didn’t mean he could goof off or play games. Other youngsters still had schoolwork to finish.The fifth-grader spent 20 minutes reading from the book “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” — eagerly waiting for tutor Pegi Spriggs to sign off on his reading when he finished — then assisted 8-year-old Aliaha Wright with her math homework.”We don’t want you to sit here and play,” said Spriggs, a teacher at Elizabeth Scott and a volunteer at Greenleigh. “As much as we love games — and there is value in the games — we’re after the academics here.”It was business as usual at the learning cottage, a double-wide trailer that serves as a classroom/community center for academic assistance to elementary and middle school students living in the Greenleigh Mobile Home Park off Jefferson Davis Highway in Chester.The tutoring program that began last fall in the sprawling 513-lot Greenleigh trailer park was an instant success.On its first day, nearly 60 students signed up, but because of size limitations, only 15 students can participate in the six-week sessions.

By Catherine HosmanLocal cheer students competed in Fun Cheer Nationals earlier this month in Huntsville. (Courtesy Photo)According to the Webster’s Dictionary the word courage is defined as “the mental or moral strength to venture, persevere and withstand fear or difficulty.”It is this definition that gives Courage Cheer and Dance United in Liberty Hill the platform on which it helps to build children’s strength and confidence as they navigate their lives in the 21st Century.“We give the children the courage to go beyond their comfort level and find new experiences they wouldn’t be able to find otherwise,” said Jason Hodges, general manager.Justin Johnson, co-owner with his wife, Lauren, said when they were looking for a new name for their gym, they wanted one that embodied “our spirit and mentality.”“It is the competitive nature of the sport itself that takes some of the hardest events of gymnastics and power lifting people, as opposed to weights, and putting that to choreographed music,” said Mr. Johnson. “We are a performance and attitude based program.
